Today I am going to be sharing with you a recipe which we made last Christmas. Brownies are something which we love in this house no matter the the time of year. I seem to be the only one who really likes Christmas pudding though I am unsure how many times Jess has actually had it. However, when I made the Christmas pudding brownies last year they went down a storm with my parents alongside our family as well. So today I have decided that I am going to share the recipe in order to allow you to make them for your own family.
Ingredient- Serves 20
200g Dark Chocolate
175g Unsalted Butter
280g Golden Caster Sugar
130g Plain Flour
3 Medium Eggs
1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
200g Leftover Cooked Christmas Pudding
- Preheat oven to 170c or gas mark 3.
- Grease a brownie tin 20cm by 30cm and line with baking paper.
- Break 200g dark chocolate into chunks then cube 175g unsalted butter.
- Melt the dark chocolate and the unsalted butter over a pan of gently simmering water. Do not allow the base of the bowl to touch the water. Stir occasionally until melted.
- Remove from the heat and stir in 280g golden caster sugar, followed by 130g plain flour, 3 mediums eggs beaten and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract.
- Pour the mixture into the tin and smooth into the corners.
- Sprinkle over crumbled 200g leftover cooked Christmas Pudding.
- Bake for 35-40 minutes until set on and skewer comes out clean when inserted into the middle.
- Set aside to cool before cutting into pieces and serving.
What do you do with any Christmas pudding which may be leftover? Have you ever thought about making them into brownies like we managed to do? You could even purchase christmas pudding normally and do this before the festive period.
